The new look 2013 Contenders now feature Jamie Caven, Joe Cullen, Arron Monk, Deven Petersen, Keegan Brown and new signing Michael Smith. These 6 players are exactly what they’re called; professionals establishing their careers in darts, snapping at the heels of the established players and likely to surprise many with their skill, dedication and 'can do' enthusiasm. They know no fear and the world titles are theirs for the taking.
Keegan Brown has come of age in the world of darts.
At the age of just 20, Arron Monk can call himself a ‘World Champion’!
It is a remarkable darting story – how Jamie Caven has overcome some major handicaps in his life to become one of the best players in the business.
Caven has been blind in his right eye since he was a baby and when he was 20, he had his pancreas removed, which has left him needing four insulin injections a day for the rest of his life.
He has the drive, the ambition, the ability and the backing of a three-year sponsorship from Unicorn as he continues a journey that he is convinced will lead to ‘Major’ darts titles.
He is the young darts star carrying the hopes of a nation. And Devon Petersen is determined that he won’t let South Africa down, as he embarks on a career that he hopes will bring success on the big darts stages around the world.
He goes by the nickname of ‘Rockstar’ and at the age of just 22, Joe Cullen is set for a massive future in the world of the Professional Darts Corporation.
